Cheap Hosting Solutions for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are two items you require in order to establish a web site. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web site when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting package, which is principally the storage space on a hosting server where the website files will be placed, plus a few more services that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting account are two linked, yet separate solutions, and you require them both so as to have a functioning website.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it is composed of two constituents – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a certain number of top-level domain names to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed spell of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may have additional stipulations about the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a hosting package where you have to host it. In such a way, when you type it in a browser, it will show the content that you host in the account, in other words it will show your site. You can have a domain name registered with a given provider and get the hosting service from another, although many hosting vendors offer both services and it is more user-friendly to administer everything from a single web hosting CP user interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to modify a given setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name server records. Each web host has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.www.hostcheap.com and ns2.www.hostcheap.com, for example. The CP that you use for your domain name offers you the possibility to modify the NS records and point the domain to one hosting corporation or another.

The Demand for Trustworthy Web Hosting Solutions

As soon as the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting company and is added to their hosting servers, you will get several services. The most vital one is that the web page files that you keep on the web server will now be shown when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create mail address accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail user agent to handle them. Whether you manage a personal or a corporate web page, being online and being enabled to use emails with your domain are the two most cardinal things that you get with a website hosting plan. If you have a corporate site – it will identify your business before your visitors or clients. This is the reason why you demand a trustworthy web hosting vendor that will supply a fast and steady website hosting service.
